By Vonnegut presenting his story in this manner, it almost creates Harrison to look more like a supervillain than a superhero, like intended.

I remerber the first time I learned how to read. That was the hardest things I’ve ever learned. Because, when I was in kindergarden, I wasn’t a smart boy. I just wanted to play and play so, when my teacher asked me to read, I couldn’t do that because I never review my lesson at home. After that, my teacher told my mother to take me to a private class and also have to pay more to my school.

Whether that was at school, church, or family gatherings there was constantly someone coming up to me speaking in Spanish. When it came to reading the examples out loud in Spanish class, my teacher expected her “native” students to set the example. However, I for one can’t roll my tongue; therefore, not being able to pronounce the Spanish words correctly.

To this day, I remember the pressure of trying to learn my traditional language and learning English at school. I felt the pressure from not only my family but other members of the tribe.
How can one day of kindergarten possibly impact the rest of my academic life? Growing up, I was an odd character. I loved nothing more than school and constantly ached to shove newly learned knowledge into my brain; so much so, that on holidays, weekends, or sick days, I would cry that I was missing out on my important education. I would not think about naps and playgrounds and fortunately for five year old me, my school started teaching us science and social studies and math early on. I would rush home with my book bag swinging, looking forward to the time spent on homework and review.
